Good Afternoon All!


I hope everyone has had a good week…maybe enjoying a little cooler temperatures than we have in Charleston SC.  I have a question concerning the disposal of crown ethers.  This may be too broad of a question, but are there any special considerations with their disposal?  We are trying to rid ourselves of some “legacy” chemicals and I admit that I’m not very familiar with crown ethers.  Other ethers can be peroxide-forming and must be handled accordingly.  I’m told crown ethers are different, but I would feel better with some other guidance/advice.


Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
